An education that powers a lifetime:

The School of History, Philosophy, and Religion provides students with a richly connected series of lenses though which they can examine the universe and their place in it.  Our students learn to research, analyze, and contextualize the changing roles of religion, science, politics, and thought in both ancient and modern cultures.  They also develop ethical, moral reasoning, and critical thinking skills in the service of an engaged life. 

This foundation has enabled our graduates to find careers delving in the archives at the Library of Congress, working as ethical consultants for international corporations, opening and operating their own businesses, serving in government, nonprofits, and the military, and even becoming teachers, ministers, and professors themselves.
